Greek Pizza

One of my very favorite pizzas is a Greek pizza from a local restaurant but it costs over $25.00 for one pizza. I was inspired to make my own version of this pizza by Kim's Mediterranean pizza at My Lil' Kitchen. For less than $10.00 I made a wonderful Greek pizza that my entire family loved. The salty kalamata olives and feta cheese tasted delicious with the artichoke hearts, tomato sauce, red onions and tomatoes. It's my new favorite homemade pizza. Simple to make, easy to clean up and it doesn't break the bank. Thanks for the inspiration Kimmie!

Greek Pizza:

Inspired by Kim at My Lil' Kitchen
  • Pizza dough (I used Trader Joe's)
  • Corn meal (to sprinkle on pizza baking tray)
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Feta cheese (I used reduced fat)
  • Frozen artichoke hearts, thawed
  • Kalamata olives, sliced in half lengthwise
  • Red onion, sliced thinly
  • Roma tomato, sliced thinly
  • Dried oregano

Let the dough sit on a floured surface for 20 minutes before rolling it out. Thaw the artichoke hearts on a paper towel, make sure to blot them with an additional paper towel to remove any excess liquid. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Coat a large pizza baking tray with cooking spray then sprinkle lightly with corn meal. Roll the dough into whatever shape and size of pizza you desire. Place on baking tray. Evenly spread sauce, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, tomato slices, red onions, kalamata olives, feta cheese and oregano on top.

Place in the oven and bake for 10-14 minutes or until desired crispiness. Remove from oven and slice. Enjoy.
